Find a hole with rubbing alcohol!

on Fri, 02/28/2014 - 23:56

Here is a great idea we just read about in Field & Stream:

Gore-Tex is what most lightweight, breathable waders and rain gear are made of.  This is a common material for this type of gear because it keeps you dry but remains flexible and keeps you from getting too clammy.  But what happens when you poke a hole in it?  If this has ever happened to you, you understand how uncomfortable you can become in a short amount of time, cutting your outdoor activity time considerably.

SG-20 Adhesive used with Leather

on Wed, 02/19/2014 - 23:26

Recently we received an email from a customer who was wondering if SG-20 would work to repair her leather boots. The customer had cracks across her work boots that she occasionally repaired using caulk.  The problem was that this repair technique was only holding up for about a month.  She was delighted to find out that SG-20 will bond to leather and will pretty much be a permanent seal!  

In order to use SG-20 on a leather product, make sure that the leather is clean and dry.  Apply the SG-20 directly over the area that you want to repair and wait for an hour before using.

SG-20 Adhesive for a neoprene dog vest?

on Fri, 09/27/2013 - 23:09

Earlier this month we received an email from a man interested in SG-20 Adhesive.  He wanted to know if it would repair a neoprene dog vest.  Here is how the Q&A went:

 

Question:

I will be custom fitting a neoprene dog vest.  This will require removing some excess material and gluing the neoprene back together.  Would you recommend SG-20 Adhesive for this application? 

Answer:

Thanks for the question.  SG-20 Adhesive would be perfect for this application.  

Just make sure that the vest is dry when applying the material.

Vettec's SG-20 Adhesive Works to Repair Breathable Waders

on Fri, 08/09/2013 - 18:57

You already know that SG-20 can repair Muck Boots, but did you know that it also repairs Neoprene and Breathable waders?!? Well it does.  For Neoprene waders, they repair can be done as long as the waders are clean and dry.  

 If a repair is being made on the breathable wader material you would not try to fix the leak on the outside of the waders as it will not totally bond. This is because the breathable wader material is covered with a water resistant coating that SG-20 doesn't adhere to.  Instead, we would suggest turning the waders inside out as much as possible to access the area.

SG-20 Outdoor adhesive - technical question!

Q: I have a pair of breathable waders that have a small, slow leak where the boots meet the material. If using your product, SG-20 Adhesive, how would I apply it to the seam from the inside like you state for breathable waders? The boot does not bend to get a good application. Or could one just apply it on the outside seam?  - D.R.

A: If the area, in question, is the breathable wader material we would not try to fix the leak there as it will not totally bond. This is because the breathable wader material is covered with a water resistant coating that SG-20 doesn't adhere to.

"Here are the repairs I have done so far -one is obviously a pair of boots and the other (which is harder to identify) is the crotch area in my hunting waders (very crucial repair). The SG-20 did everything it said it would do. It made the repairs and has held up in the field very well so far.
